Soldier from 173rd Airborne injured by another soldier in Grafenwoehr street brawl

An American soldier was injured in a brawl Saturday night on a Grafenwoehr street that’s home to several bars, German police and U.S. military officials said.

“At this time, we are investigating a 21-year-old man” who is suspected of injuring the soldier in the brawl, said Werner Stopfer, chief of police in the town of Eschenbach, whose officers responded to calls about the melee about 2 a.m. on Alte Amberger Strasse in Grafenwoehr.

The injured soldier was from the 173rd Airborne Division, said Maj. Christopher Bradley, a spokesman for the division, which has units in Grafenwoehr and in Vicenza, Italy. He was treated for his injuries and returned to duty, Bradley added.

The other person involved also is an American soldier, said Bradley, but it was unclear which unit he was attached to.

German police detained the suspect and handed him over to U.S. military police, said Stopfer.

By the time German police officers had arrived on the scene from Eschenbach, about 7 miles away, about two dozen people were involved in a street brawl, said Stopfer. It was unclear whether all of those involved in the fight are American service members.

Soldiers from the 173rd have been accused of being involved in numerous violent incidents in Vicenza, including a fight in which one Italian man’s jaw was fractured and another person sustained broken ribs.

The incident in the Italian city’s old town in November spurred the 173rd Airborne Brigade’s commander to put Contra Pescherie Vecchie — which, like Alte Amberger Strasse in Grafenwoehr, is home to several popular bars — off limits to brigade soldiers for 45 days.

Patrols by military police will be stepped up this weekend in the Grafenwoehr area “to ensure proper discipline and provide support to any soldiers in need,” said Bradley.

“Soldier from 173rd Airborne injured by another soldier in Grafenwoehr street brawl”

Ahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
I suggest that all US troops occupying Germany will bash each others’ heads in. That will be the cheapest way for Germany to get rid of US occupation, which has lasted now since 1945. Enough!

THE TELEGRAPH: US American soldiers banned from Italian main street after vicious brawl Around 2,000 US Army soldiers have been banned from one of the main streets in the Italian city of Vicenza after a brawl between soldiers and locals. The temporary ban, which affects members of the 173rd Airborne Brigade stationed in the city, involves the quaint via Contra’ Pescherie Vecchie, where two young Vicenza men say they were surrounded and beaten by several soldiers after a verbal exchange just outside a popular watering hole for off duty combat paratroopers. “This is not my face. I was not like… Read more »

US soldiers are hated everywhere in Europe, not just in Germany but in Italy, too. Such uncouth, un-European manners! Awful people! US troops are simply scum. Who will stop this barbarian invasion of Europe? How can we get rid of the US plebs in uniform? It is a disgrace and a shame!

All of Europe should be off limits for US soldiers because they are primitive, barbaric, uneducated scum, plebs, prolos!

Not only Europe is off limits for US idiots, but Northern Africa, too. I remember very well the incident of the “street brawl” in Benghazi, Libya, when a US ambassador and three other US idiots got lynched. That was eight years ago, in 2012. What have the US feeble-minded governments learned since then? Nothing, nitschevo, nada. Serves the US right for pestering other nations constantly that their people get blocked, banned, injured and killed abroad. Below is the article of THE GUARDIAN about Libya.

Its intended to support the narrative that NATO’s Defender-20 exercise is in danger of falling apart. Of course the idea that NATO is in danger of falling apart because soldiers brawl in the street is an infantile premise, but it does hold appeal to many who view the world in an infantile way. Most people are unwilling to understand the real reasons why NATO is riddled with cracks, as it contradicts the narrative that the elites feed them, but they CAN relate to framing it in the context of a schoolyard brawl. Its not that people are inherently stupid, its… Read more »

The text says clearly that it was two drunken US soldiers, no Germans involved. Germans do not mix with US idiots. On the contrary. They want to get rid of them. If they cannot, they simply ignore them. It is the best they can do.

“It was the 19th attack since October to target either the embassy or the roughly 5,200 US troops stationed alongside local forces across Iraq.”

I hope that the 20th attack will hit them hard and kill them all. Send them all home in body bags!
